Thanks, Charles. The page you posted above doesn't answer my question about asymmetry. I want to hear about that and imaging precision from owners. And BTW, "breadth of the center image", as described by Ryan Waniata, doesn't count. My 601s and KEFs I've heard have a huuuuuge center image. In fact, that's all there is - center image. Those who have never heard Axiom's v4 think that center image is pretty sweet. Of course then they listen to my v4 and they're wrecked forever. It's difficult to convince myself that LFRs are better in the imaging department than the bipolar v4. Wider soundstage maybe but not imaging. I wouldn't give up the holographic soundstage I enjoy with the v4 for anything!

Mojo, I know I wasn't helping you at all. I just wanted to post the link for the LFR1100 Active somewhere, and your thread was winking at me.

I'm really happy with what my first-gen LFR1100s do for me, but I know I don't have them dialed in as well as yours are. I did play with positioning a couple of weeks ago and felt I improved them significantly. If I just keep doing that, maybe I'll get there, right?

Charles, I think you need to upgrade to the actives. smile

As for the actives, those can't be the correct specs.

No, I think they're just using the normal LFR1100 info as a placeholder.

The LFR1100 Active product page in a work in progress right now but will be done by Monday. I will start a new thread about it so you can see what is coming soon.

Ian - is there going to be a way to retrofit a pair of 1100's into the actives? I could possibly drive them to the factory this fall.

Hi Craig,

That would be a tough modification. I think a trade-up would be best. But you still need to make the trip to the factory because it is fun!

I think this answers my question, Charles. What I don't know is whether or not the LFR actives are as pin-point as the non-LFR v4.

"Omnidirectional speakers have had a cult following among music lovers ‘in the know’ for years. Why? Because their wide-open 3D soundstage transforms your room into a huge concert venue. Traditionally they have done this at the expense of the pinpoint detail, but now you can have both! By using a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) between the front and rear drivers the LFR series of omnidirectional speakers have both a wide-open 3D soundstage and pinpoint detail."
